  • PopSugar Health & Fitness has cast eight popular protein drinks under the microscope. See which one comes out on top in terms of sugars, fat and calories.


  • Unless you’re a professional who needs to fine-tune their body-sculpting to Hollywood actor levels of precision, comparisons on protein shakes are usually pretty pointless. Go whey or go home, and most importantly, does it taste good so you can put up with slamming it down on a regular basis? I’d ask for taste-test articles, but that’s sooo subjective. (Pretty good bet that more sugars = better taste, though.)

    • Well put – additionally, most of the research I’ve done suggests that 95% of whey protein used in supplements all comes from the same factories in Asia on a wholesale basis before being flavoured, etc anyway. The actual protein “quality” would almost universally be the same, so you’d just be choosing on taste, carb content and other additives.
